Great little book for the tweenage to early teen reader. Purchased this for my daughter's school library wishlist. Tries to put a "hip" slant on individual mini bios which works well for the intended audience.
This is an amazing book-- well researched and written! It is engaging enough to appeal to my niece, but interesting enough to make me want to read it as well. Modern culture is unfortunately lacking in quality role models, especially for our girls, but history is full of them. Get this book for every young girl in your life!
